CDS Sneak Peek Day #4

Today I will be showing you a new set being released tomorrow from Clear Dollar Stamps called Church Chatter. To see the stamp set sheet, check it out on Lori's blog. For this card I paired up the verse from Church Chatter (stamped in Memento black) with the cross from Prayer Journal (stamped in Memento Angel Pink). Colors of paper include kraft, pink pirouette, black, and white with designer papers by SU and BoBunny. Of course I had to add some stitching and pearls (these are actually dew drops)!
This card includes the stamp set Old Time Church with the verse from Church Chatter. I used my watercolor pencils on the church. I had to give it a green roof because my church back home was known for it. People used it as a landmark when giving directions or such. I remember in 1977 we got hit with a flood (I grew up in Johnstown, PA) and our church took the brunt of the water and debris, saving a lot of homes around it. Proof that God and Church can save you in more ways than one!! Anyway, about the card, colors include Soft suede, River rock, Bazzill scraps, white and Cosmo Cricket DSP Everlasting (also from my scrap bin). The river rock layer is embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. A button tied with hemp, dew drops, and a clip with a ribbon scrap are the embellishments. Simply had to add a bit of paper piercing somewhere!! Thanks for stopping by and checking out these sneak peeks, but you really should check out the other DT members blogs too:
